As I get older I find myself having less patience for the bulk of their catalog.I'm now about 50 shows short of listening and reviewing their output from Keith's first show through 12/31/79.What I've come to realize is that about 80% of their work is mediocre to awful,10% is good,5% very good and 5% is as good as music get's.As far as the 30 years go only 68'-78' really hold any interest for me.So I have no trouble with limiting what I listen to now to a small sampling out of a large pool,being as that I have wasted a tremendous amount of time listening to a whole bunch of crap they have thrown at us has an audience over that 30 year span.

As I said earlier..."...different strokes for different folks".

I have never listened to a show that I couldn't find something positive and entertaining. I'm not saying it is all good, but there is good in all of it.
